Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

A club run where riders can bail out at 80 km (Shoreham station) or continue for the full 140 km back to Havant. Elevenses at Wiggonholt RSPB centre at km 48; lunch in Steyning at km 72; tea in Bosham at km 132.
An 08h30 start at Havant Spring Centre would work well with the proposed refreshment stops.
The aim of the ride is to capture the maximum variety that Southern England offers ... chalk downland with some high ridge riding, wooded lanes, a riverside run, old Saxon towns and villages, seaside towns and coastal landscapes. However we give busy roads a miss.
There are one or two steep sections, but with an average gradient of 0.77%, this is not a hilly ride.
